    I know there is a bit of representation of Atlanta on the board. As such, do any of you Atlantaians grow bical? If so, how do you recommend? I can it take it outside?

    Bicals do NOT like being outside in the south. Trust me, so far the only Nep's that have done well outside here in Texas for me is Ventricada and Coccinea.

    I don't have bical but I grow almost all my non-highlanders outside during the suummer (once nights get over 50 actually). They all take a bit of time aclimating to the higher light and serious sunburn is not unheard of but all do great once settled in. I also seem to recall that CNC had a bical outside when I was there a year or so ago.

    Personally I would be inclined to say it should do okay but would recommend pretty haevy shading to start with and pay very close attention to watering
